George Orwell wrote 1984, a book that tells about a government in future known as "Big Brothers" on would place everyone under surveillance and spies every aspect of one's life. Now one cannot take gainsay the significance of that book because what did he say is perfectly correct. But what really makes me worry now is everyone has camera and everyone has become photographer and paying scant regard to ethical issues.

I have seen embarrassing pictures of people on different social media platforms . And I still wonder how confidently , people are uploading pictures on internet someone's consent. There are laws in some countries which prohibits taking pictures or making video of naked person but what those people will do who are not naked but they don't want to be photographed.

Back in 2015, I had a college trip to hilly area and I saw a guitarist who was not playing guitar unless the visitors turn off their cams. I found it very strange and asked him reason. He told me that he doesn't want his family to know about his work . And so many examples I experienced in life .

Therefore, I will request to all Hivers and photographers to follow ethical photography . Do ask permissions if possible.

Stay safe!
